What is THC-O Acetate?
Amongst the many recent cannabinoids that have gained popularity, THC-O has won the hearts of many. Like Delta 9 THC, THC-O has psychoactive properties.
THC-O Acetate has gained a reputation that goes both ways for several reasons. THC-O is an alternate cannabinoid-like Delta-8 THC; similarly to D8, THC-O begins with CBD. THC-O Acetate is not a cannabinoid that you can DIY; this requires heavy equipment, a specialized lab, and a chemist certified in a specific branch of special training. Creating THC-O is extremely dangerous; everything is delicate, flammable, and volatile, so let the professionals handle it. They don’t even touch the chemicals; a machine handles the cannabinoid while the chemist wears a hazmat suit. While you may find this unsettling, it’s a happy ending; don’t worry.
Ultimately, THC-O goes through a solvent process similar to CBD, turning into Delta 8 THC, except now, Delta-8 is used as the base of the chemical processing. You can say that THC-O is synthetic because it’s not readily available inside hemp or marijuana plants. But the meaning of synthetic has changed significantly in this instance. THC-O is federally legal under the Farm Bill of 2018.
What is CBD?
CBD is the day one non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has blown up amongst the health and wellness community. CBD can be found, in an abundant amount, in cannabis plants. Both Hemp and Marijuana carry a large amount of CBD. However, Hemp is the reigning champion when it comes to quantity with CBD.

What is the difference between CBD and THC-O?
Along with CBD being non-psychoactive, CBD is biphasic. Biphasic means that your body reacts differently based on how you are consuming a cannabinoid. CBD is a sativa in smaller quantities and an indica in larger quantities. This works with Delta-8 THC as well. THC-O is psychoactive, but research hasn’t produced enough information to determine whether it is biphasic. Delta-8 THC converts into what is known as Delta-11 (11-Hydroxy-Δ⁹-
THC-O is available in gummies, flower, tinctures, vapes carts, concentrates, and other edible types such as chocolates.
CBD and THC-O are legal through the Federal Farm Bill of 2018. ATLRx takes safety very seriously; for that reason, we take the necessary measures to ensure our customers are satisfied and without worries. While the CBD industry remains unregulated, ATLRx complies with the federal regulations of recreational states such as Colorado and Oregon. We advocate for transparency because you deserve to know what you’re consuming. We use the safest and cleanest form of extraction called Supercritical C02 and Ethanol extraction. After the extraction, ATLRx tests the distillate to assure the purest quality in a DEA-certified lab panel test. Once we get the go-ahead, we then convert the cannabinoids. These conversions are followed up with another series of tests for pesticides, metals, and solvents. Nothing comes into our retail front until it is a perfectly safe product.
